To add to the holistic wellness experience, guests can also experience a highly personalized wellness itinerary guided by the resident Holistic Wellness Coach. We speak with Aye Mon Yee, InterContinental Hotels Group’s Cluster Director of Spa, to learn more about its personalized offering.
HOLISTIC WELLNESS COACH
The Holistic Wellness Coach is a single point of contact for the wellbeing experiences and personalized daily activities throughout a guest’s stay, empowered to work with the guest to anticipate needs and curate experiences for optimal wellbeing.
“We believe in the principle of ‘On their terms’,” says Regent Phu Quoc‘s Spa Director Aye Mon Yee, “hence guests are encouraged to connect with our Holistic Wellness Coach and select an experience, a particular fitness routine or a nutritious consultation at their preferred time throughout their stay.”
Private guided yoga such as Paddle Board Yoga alongside various types of meditation and breathing techniques are available with the Holistic Wellness Coach.
INNOVATION MEETS TRADITION
Combining all-encompassing comforts and innovative techniques with natural time-honored remedies, its philosophy is rooted in three distinct pillars: high touch, high frequency and high energy.
“High touch encompasses Sensory Therapies,” says Spa Director Aye Mon Yee. “We deliver a therapeutic touch and create a sense of relaxation and wellbeing with energy healing.”
Therapies include Tam Quat Reviver, a revitalizing body massage inspired by traditional Vietnamese healing techniques that combines aromatherapy oils and pressure point kneading movements to boost energy levels, ease muscle tension and promote circulation; Body Balancer, a powerful tension-busting massage using Shiatsu-inspired techniques to release deep-seated tension and alleviate muscle stress; and Harmony Ritual, a massage that penetrates deep into the tissue using unique meridian techniques to stimulate blood circulation, enhance flexibility, and promote energy flow.
Under its High Frequency pillar, advanced spa technology is combined with innovative wellness techniques to create a cutting-edge experience. “The Alpha Quartz Sand Cocoon Therapy is a 60-minute therapeutic massage where the quartz bed contours the body to alleviate any muscle stiffness by creating a cocoon effect, combining Balinese and Hawaiian techniques to melt away tension and restore a flow of energy and vitality,” adds Yee, “while the 30-minute Welnamis Touch & Deep Therapy uses specific vibrations and binaural audio frequencies for even the busiest minds to achieve deep levels of relaxation.”
High Energy focuses on spiritual healing. “We use vibrating frequencies from crystals and gemstones to stimulate energy and glow,” she adds. “There is no such thing as a standard treatment; each experience is unique.” The exclusively designed 90-minute Chakra Cleaning Glow treatment targets guests’ stress profile which combines vibrations from crystals and aromatherapy oils to release tension and balance meridians, enhancing energy circulation throughout the body.
The therapeutic sound of Himalayan singing bowls accompanies a full-body massage for the Singing Bowl Quartz Therapy to awaken the senses and attune the body’s rhythm to a tranquil state, resulting in a higher level of relaxation and faster muscle recovery.
Bastien’s Duo is a synchronized four-hands treatment where two therapists work in tandem to offer a complete manicure and pedicure, followed by a simultaneous massage to boost circulation and mobility.
If you seek a completely soothing and calming massage, then opt for the Global Massage Refoundation, this four-hand synchronized massage gives a sensation of lightness to the whole body, relieving any muscle tension in the legs and arms.
“Guests can also immerse themselves in the resort’s luxury Facial Suite, equipped with Biologique Recherche skin care products, for the ultimate indulgence, where each treatment begins with an analysis with an Instant Lab machine to design transformative solutions catering to their unique skincare needs,” adds Yee.
WELLNESS PROGRAMS & FACILITIES
Facilities include a Yoga Rooftop Pavilion, a Health Club and five outdoor swimming pools. The Health Club, with its diverse range of state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, is open 24 hours so guests can keep fit anytime while enjoying incomparable views. In addition to the fitness area, The Health Club also houses a rooftop reset studio and yoga pavilions.
“Located in the Ocean Wing on the eighth floor, the yoga pavilion is surrounded by lush foliage and offers vast views of the pearlescent ocean,” says Yee.
Guests can choose from an array of complimentary daily scheduled activities to recharge and rejuvenate. Highlights include Reset Meditation, a breathing meditation where guests can calm their mind, settle their emotions and relax their bodies with relaxing views across the peaceful Gulf of Siam. There is also Sunset Aerial Yoga, a zero-gravity yoga session held in the reset studio which leads to a decompressing effect on the body.
“Private classes as well as Aerial yoga can be scheduled on guests’ terms,” says Yee. “Wellness Programs include a selection of yoga and meditation classes. Furthermore, we also encourage guests to ride bicycles, walk throughout the resort’s gardens or beach front pedestrian road. The wellness activities can be worked into a wellness retreat program for guests who wish to experience such a journey.”
